The Finance Innovation Lab is an incubator for positive change in the financial system.
We believe in a financial system that works for people and for the planet. One that is democratic, responsible and fair.
We build communities of innovators and advocates who are creating a better financial system. We help them grow as leaders and scale their work.
We do this in three ways;
- We incubate new business models, innovation in mainstream and new forms of civil society
- We accelerate the capacity of leaders to create change
- We create the wider conditions for change by raising awareness, creating supportive communities and advocating for policy change
We work with people from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, including mainstream finance, the creative industries, academia, NGOs and the alternative business and finance world.
The Lab is co-convened by WWF-UK (World Wide Fund for Nature) and ICAEW (the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales). Iit was launched in 2008 and has been named one ‘50 New Radicals, changing the face of Britain for the better’ by NESTA and The Observer newspaper.
